Our second child — a boy named Wyatt Paul — was born yesterday morning. Currently, everyone is doing very well and we’re still in the hospital as my wife recovers from surgery. My in-laws are staying at our house and watching our daughter.
All things considered, it seems that this delivery went even smoother than the first time. Angela has been in better health (minus horrible heartburn & nausea) and her recovery seems to be going even faster this go round. We have a very brief scare just before the scheduled surgery time when it appeared her blood pressure had dramatically dropped and his heart rate also dropped. After literally running my wife’s bed down the hall to the OR, they quickly realized all was okay and let us breathe again.
Moments later, at exactly 8:17 am, we had a handsome little baby boy. Angela, though heavily sedated, got to spend a bit of time with him before I took him off to the nursery (well, I followed the nurses, anyway). There, he was greeted by two of his grandparents and his big sister on the other side of the glass.
He was weighed and measured while I watched in the nursery. His weight was 7 lbs. 8 oz. (exactly what Angela had guessed) and his length was 20 1/4 in. I went out to see my daughter and talk to my family. I then went back to the room to wait on Angela and make some phone calls. Angela got wheeled back in to the room about 30 minutes later. And, much to our delight, Wyatt came in just moments thereafter. He began feeding without much trouble and has been doing great ever since.
Angela’s parents have been back by with Ainsley a couple of times since. Ainsley is already pointing at her little brother and saying “baby!” As I stated earlier, Angela has been recovering very well. We’re all set to go home as soon as we can.
In the meantime, all the latest news and information on Wyatt is over at his website.
